2004 Expedition blower noise

The front blower in my 2004 Ford Expedition makes a rattling/knocking sound when set to 2, 3 or 4. You can't hear it when its on 1 but it gets louder and much more aggravating when the fan speed is increased. Can someone tell me what this probably is and where the front blower assembly is located?

if the noise is coming from the bottom end of the motor then you have either bad connecting rod bearings or bad crank bearings.if when you snap the throttle you hear a double knock then its connecting rod bearing if not then its crank bearing.a collapsed piston can sound low in the engine and its usually a dull knock noise.if you have the engine running and the noise is there and you pull off one plug wire at a time(and reconnect it after checking) and the noise goes away or mostly goes away with the wire unhooked then the cylinder that the noise changed is the cylinder that has a bad piston.

That doesnt sound good. Check the engine oil level and top up as necessary. If the noise is still there, then you should take it to a mechanic to check. It could mean that you need to either replace the engine or overhaul it. Hope that helps

SOURCE: blower motor noise

the blower motor is like round cage and the only way to get to it is to take appart the dash. not the insterment cluster but the top and through the glove box is probably the only access. i doubt you will find a schematic just take lots of pictures while taking appart of what each screw looks like as it comes out. most the heater vents are in your way taking them out is not only screws but plastic barbs. just take every thing appart that is plastic and keep track of where it goes the cage you want is dead center of the dash. you dont need to take it out just get access to it. also what ever got there probably fell from one of the vents that blows onto the windshield so the top of dash removal may be easier if all you need is access to pull out some trash.

My 2005 Ford Expedition is blowing hot air from the front vents and suddenly the rear vents stopped working at all but I can sometimes hear a noise on the rear part of the truck ,may someone please tell me...


to me this sounds like a blend door problem. this is in the heater box, first you need to pinpoint the noise. there is 2 heater boxes on front and a rear both have blend doors. being you hear a noise, I suspect either door is jambed by forign object or broken, but still could be a problem with the actuator for the door. as for the rear not blowing?,check the position of the front blower switch, one position will disable rear function. honestly this
should be done by an experianced technican, I was 20yrs ford.

The engine has a nkockig sound..could this be caused by a bad knock sensor?


No it isnt a knock sensor the knock sensor job is to detect a knock noise and ****** timing. The knock that it is looking for is from octane or fuel or pinging that creates N0X s. A pollution gas. The knocking noise that you are hearing is different. If it is a multiple noise ar a rattling sound that will be the valves. There are other noises like a piston knock this knock is a sharp metallic noise, If the knock occurs only on acceleration that noise is a crankshaft noise. You need to check you oil level and make sure it is corrects. Look at the oil condition do you see silverish or whitish condition,is the oil deep black.

Check the heat shield to the exhaust manifolds, good chance that the bolts on them have rusted off or is loose causing the Heat Shields to rattle making the tinny rattle noise. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know if that's making the noise, and if not we can look at other things.

This may be due to old oil. I'd first try changing the oil. The viscosity of old oil may be to thin causing serious run off in the top end. All of the lubrication may be off of the valve assembly causing it to chatter and make these noises until the motor can re-lubricate the valve train.

Also, it may be due to low oil, to heavy of a wieght of oil (such as 15w40 or 20x50). I believe with most of the 04's the recommended oil weight is 5w30.

Try an oil change and see if the noise goes away. If it doesn't I'd do a quick visual inspection under the hood for rattling parts while the engine is running. It could just be a loose housing or something causing the noise. Hope this helps bud!
